Oh-ho, so that's why I couldn't find the name in the list. Wasn't considering name changes.

Nice sighting. This one is Pt/H crassicaulis, which is like an alpine version of cycnocephala but has a thicker, fleshy stem and striped, crowded flowers.

Good-oh, thanks Tobias. I'll put up some other photos I took near Cabramurra back in 2011 and see if you think they are the same thing. I've currently got them labelled as cycnocephala, but that may be wrong eh?
